No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

A Message for A Three Year Old

by @ 5:53 on August 28, 2008. Filed under Talking to Four Year Olds.

Sometimes, when working with small children, it’s possible to assume too much about the child’s intellectual capabilities  and their ability to  grasp a topic.   Apparently, that was my mistake when I tried to explain to Nancy Pelosi her error on abortion theology.

After getting not only my advice, but that of several prominent Catholic Archbishops, Nancy remains steadfast in her belief that Catholicism allows for abortion. Nancy is standing on the following statement by Saint Augustine:

the law does not provide that the act (abortion) pertains to homicide, for there cannot yet be said to be a live soul in a body that lacks sensation …

OK Nancy, we tried the 4 year old level and that didn’t take. Let’s try the 3 year old level.

Nancy, it’s well documented that fetuses (read that babies) at 8 weeks can feel pain. Even using Saint Augustine’s definition, all second and third trimester abortions and the last month of the first trimester would be considered homicide. I wonder if Nancy will sign up for that? Along those lines, If Nancy believes that St. Augustine is the final arbiter of knowledge for medical science, perhaps she would be OK if the next time she went in for her “nip and tuck” the surgeon refused to use anesthesia because of course, it didn’t exist at St. Augustine’s time!

There is only one thing worse than someone with an ego that knows no bounds. That is someone with an overinflated ego who, when presented with irrefutable proof of their error and ignorance, clings to their ego as the arbiter of all knowledge.
